Are wood burning stoves messy?
Many people are put off investing in a wood-burning stove because they have common misconceptions about them. One of those misconceptions is that they’re messy or difficult to operate and maintain. Most wood-burning stoves take minutes to clear out using an ash pan and the ash can be deposited directly into the bin, or even used for composting. As for maintenance, all you need to do is keep a supply of wood ready for when you want to light a fire. Some local authorities in wooded areas will sell wood and logs cheaply, and you can find firewood relatively cheaply online too. A small bulk bag from Certainly Wood costs under £16 a month and can last you a whole year. You can buy or build yourself woodshed to store it and you’re all set.
